Summary of "Alterations of grey matter volumes and network-level functions in patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease."

The purpose of this study was to investigate structural and functional alterations of the brain in the patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and further investigate how these alterations correlated to parameters of pulmonary function test, cognitive function and disease duration in patients with COPD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cortical malformations characterized by grey matter-lined cleft or cyst that extends from the EPENDYMA often to the PIA MATER outer surface. The grey matter that lines the cleft is often POLYMICROGYRIA. It is associated with developmental delay, motor disturbance and seizures.

A condition that is characterized by HEADACHE; SEIZURES; and visual loss with edema in the posterior aspects of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, such as the BRAIN STEM. Generally, lesions involve the white matter (nerve fibers) but occasionally the grey matter (nerve cell bodies).

The portion of midbrain situated under the dorsal TECTUM MESENCEPHALI. The two ventrolateral cylindrical masses or peduncles are large nerve fiber bundles providing a tract of passage between the forebrain with the hindbrain. Ventral midbrain also contains three colorful structures: the grey matter (PERIAQUEDUCTAL GRAY), the black substance (SUBSTANTIA NIGRA), and the RED NUCLEUS.

Sudden temporary alterations in the normally integrative functions of consciousness.

Microdevices that combine microfluidics technology with electrical and/or mechanical functions for analyzing very small fluid volumes. They consist of microchannels etched into substrates made of silicon, glass, or polymer using processes similar to photolithography. The test fluids in the channels can then interact with different elements such as electrodes, photodetectors, chemical sensors, pumps, and valves.
